We no longer post pictures and the full names of our clients. We made a decision that it was in the best interest of our clients to protect their identities and personal information.

The following are actual testimonials from MBS Clients we have simply eliminated any identifying information.
Training with someone you know better than most has been a great experience especially when you get to train in the comfort of your own home. We have always been looking for someone to be able to train us and help us grow as individuals and a family. As parents we barley get to have time to devote just to ourselves which is why finding MBS CONNECTION was such a great fit for us! They found time for and we began to look forward to the early morning sessions! Each of us get one on one time and we also get to train together to combine forces and learn from one another.
Being able to train individually with MBS CONNECTION trainers has proven time and time again to be one of the best decisions I have made to improve not only my fitness but my mindset on my life and health goals. Every time I set my mind to a goal and share it with my trainer there is always a plan of action created to make sure that I reach that personal goal. I have never felt like I was alone in my journey and session met with honest feedback and ways to improve for the next visit. There has never been a question on if I am doing an exercise correctly as there is always a trainer close by to adjust. Many people have thought that training is intimidating and uncomfortable but everyone at MBS CONNECTION has always been welcoming, warm, and never quick to judge. I have outperformed myself on many occasions and always felt accomplished in everything I do. I have never been this strong, mentally or physically and there have always been obstacles I have let come between me and my goals. MBS CONNECTION showed me how to overcome and for that I will be eternally grateful.
Fitness was never something that I anticipated to be a problem until I sat down and started to think about what was going on with my health. Once that hard conversation with myself I began to look for was to start helping myself and hopefully others along the way. Individual training with MBS CONNECTION has been nothing short of a success to me meeting all my goals. They have amazing support systems in place to help me succeed and the best part is that all my workouts and eating plans are uniquely mine. When I decided to take part on the journey to work on myself I included small group training into my plan. Having the chance to be with people who have similar mindsets and are there to help whenever possible. Don't mistake fun for easy, the workouts in both individual and small group atmospheres are very challenging both mentally and physically, and the trainers will test your limits and take you beyond them. I always end up leaving a session felling motivated and encouraged; there is never a feeling of being alone on this voyage toward being a better me.
I was an athlete in school and never had to worry about what I ate because I was active. I met my husband and he was happy with who I was and that lead me to become complacent with where I was with my weight. Shortly afterward I had gotten pregnant and had health complications that changed my life. At that point I was 120lbs overweight and had hit rock bottom.
After searching online for any quick fix weight loss solutions I became desperate and began to think about weight loss surgery. I came across a post on Facebook that peaked my interest. It lead me to MBS CONNECTION. I had sent an email to inquire and Cristina got back to me quickly and we made plans to meet the next day. After getting to know one another, exploring my goals for myself I decided to start my journey and commit to start he weight loss program.
The program consisted of in home personal training twice a week, small group training three times per week and wellness coaching. I got to meet people who were going through similar journeys and people who where were I was and now were healthier versions of themselves. The people I met have become such an impressive support system. I am being taught how to live a healthier life, for the rest of my life through wellness coaching program. I am blessed to be part of such an amazing company.
I was an athlete and runner when I was in school and throughout my college career. Afterward life got in the way and I let that part of me go. I had gone through a physical for a township and hadn't gotten the results I wanted from working out on my own. A coworker had been working with MBS CONNECTION and was achieving phenomenal results. She gave me the contact information and I reached out.
When first looking into MBS small group training was a great way to get me into working out on a regular basis. I was surrounded by people who were all trying to achieve the same thing. Each workout challenged me. The best part was there was only 5 people in the group so you still got some personalized attention. New and exciting methods and workouts were introduced regularly. I found myself getting excited for my workouts.
Deciding to commit to MBS CONNECTION was one of the easiest decisions once I had spoken to Cristina. I had started my journey with small group training and ended up converting to individual training to get the specialized attention that I wanted to in order to obtain for faster fitness results for the state trooper physical. Cristina made sure she has all the education she needed to get me to where I needed to be , she created a plan of action for me and made sure through my wellness coaching consults that I understood the process. Individual training has become a vital part of my fitness journey. Having all the personalized attention really makes a difference when learning a new fitness program.
Every session that I have had has challenged my mind and muscles to a point of discovering new results/ I never thought were possible. It is exciting to see hard work pay off with MBS CONNECTION, definitely recommend individual training, it is worth it, trust me. MBS changed my life for the better.
Truthfully, I don’t think this would have happened with anyone else because I have tried many people and programs over the years, and I always ended up feeling worse in the long run, and when I stopped, I just got weaker and weaker. No one listened when I said something hurt, and no one let me go at my pace, they had a set program that I was supposed to follow rather than working with me and tailoring a program that worked for me.
With Cristina, I felt she listened to me, worked specifically to address my problem areas, and encouraged me when I was fearful. If I said a particular exercise gave me more pain, but was a necessary exercise, she would put it aside and we’d go back to it at a later time, when I was ready! I wouldn’t be at the point of my abilities today, and be mostly pain-free, if it wasn’t for Cristina. And believe me, she has patience!!! I surely challenge her every session and she never give up on me. And above all, we Laugh! we have fun during our sessions- She is a shrewd judge of character too- I question everything, and she answers, and then she gets me talking about things I love, like my grandchildren, Italy, photography, etc. so I forget what we’re doing and just do it!! And the time goes fast, and I don’t even feel like I’ve done exercise (which I generally hate anyway!
I would recommend MBS CONNECTION and Cristina to any and everyone! I’ve had my back problem for over 35 years and have never made as much progress as I have with her. She is my lifesaver and I feel stronger now than I have in 10 years, as I had been getting weaker and weaker. And now I am strong and living my life more confidently than I have in years.!
Thank you, Cristina, for giving me my life back!!!
Meet CC a 54-year-old female from Ocean County, New Jersey who after a gruesome motorcycle accident that compromised her spinal cord. After having emergency surgery due to Dundee onset paralysis, she continued to suffer from pain, discomfort, and an inability to live her life as she once did.
After many surgeries and conventional physical therapy, she felt like nothing was working and that she would never live a pain free life again. She was struggling to lose weight and strengthen her back after her major back surgery. She suffered from severe nerve damage, loss of movement, and loss of feeling. At this point CC began to lose hope and she was falling into a depression. Which is no way to live your life and why she joined not one but two of our programs. Talk about a success story!
Since joining our programs CC had a caring environment with experts who proven genuine interest in her wellbeing and who made an investment in helping her reach her goals. She was given a life back that she never thought she would have back. She was surprised how quickly she regained mobility, she no longer walked with a limp or experienced severe balance issues, she no longer misses out on work due to an inability to stand or sit for extended periods of time. CC has taken the life skills and is able to use them to keep her life on track. She no longer feels like a victim and has gained a new sense of self confidence that has able her to further advance in her career. CC understands now that she can achieve anything that she sets her mind to and that it is never too late to make positive changes in your life.
Now CC gladly and willingly shares her experience, strength, and hope with individuals who believe that change is not possible for them. As she says herself, “my journey to recovery began when I was introduced to MBS CONNECTION®.” CC now had a program that was tailored to her needs, a trainer willing to work with her given her condition and medical history, a coach who helped her break free from the negative habits she developed from living in a place of fear, and a dedicated team who was willing to work with her to achieve these amazing results and to get her past this hurdle of self-defeat and depression. CC wants others to know that the motivation from the trainers and coaches are incredibly inspiring. “It makes you excited to get up and tackle another day.”
Now more importantly when you have this in place you can finally feel secure knowing that it’s possible to live pain free and tackle your personal and professional goals.
